Bucking the trend of recent NBC sitcom ratings meltdowns, Community rose to a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating in its season premiere last night.

That's up from both last season's finale (1.3) and last season's September, 2011 premiere (1.7).

    I’m really happy about Community. Even if it slides down to 1.5 for the remainder of the season, it is still performing better than the comedies on Tuesday. Community is up against The Big Bang Theory and American Idol. It is a self starter, unlike The New Normal. If NBC wants to keep one new comedy from this season it would be Go On. The New Normal should be cancelled along with 1600 Penn.

    I can see NBC doing something like this next year:
    Comedies should not air after The Voice on Tuesday, so that would create a 2 hour comedy block on Wednesday

    Wednesday
    8pm Ceelo Green comedy
    8:30 Sean Hayes comedy
    9pm Micheal J. Fox comedy
    9:30pm Go On

    Thursday
    8pm Betty White’s Off Their Rockers/Community(16 episodes)
    8:30pm Parks & Recreation

    Unfortunately I don’t feel NBC will give Community a full season order but hopefully it gets enough to reach 100 episodes

    HELL YES. So happy with the number.
